Default "Dual" tail pipes. Will I lose any power?

I wanna get a high flow exhaust but I want to have 2 tail pipes sticking out instead of one.

Since itll most likely be a split off 1 muffler will I lose any power or will I still gain anything?

Im not trying to go fast but I dont wanna lose anything either. I just like how Big cars like Mauraders and Previous Impalas look.

What you're talking about doing is exactly what the SSE/SSEi and newer SLE'* already have.

When they mean "true" Dual exaust do they mean 2 mufflers like on a GTO?
